The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most iconic vehicles in the world, its design is timeless and it stands firmly in the ranks of the elite off-road capable vehicles. On the 17 of May the one-millionth JK model rolled off the assembly line at Chrysler Group’s Toledo.
Mauro Pino, Chrysler Group’s Vice President of Vehicle Assembly Operations, and Dan Henneman, Jeep Unit Chairman of UAW Local 12, drove the black 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition, bound for a customer in Sarasota, Fla., off the final line to the applause of employees.
“Every Jeep Wrangler sold to customers around the world is born in Toledo, Ohio,” said Pino. “Since this facility opened eight years ago, the Toledo workforce has built every one of those million vehicles with pride, passion and a focus on quality. We all look forward to building the next million.”
The 2013 Jeep Wrangler is recognized and respected by top automotive influencers, garnering numerous awards including Specialty Equipment Market Association’s Hottest 4×4 SUV; Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine’s 4×4 of the Year; Texas Auto Writers Association’s Mid-Size SUV of Texas; Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Award for Compact Utility Vehicle; Kelley Blue Book’s Top 10 Best Resale Value Award; Autobytel.com’s SUV of the Year; and Four Wheeler’s Four Wheeler of the Year Award.
